    Try using baby wipes to clean,then a small amount of baby oil on a soft cloth.

    Get some of the stuff made for leather car seats. Autoglym will do one which you'll be able to pick up in Halfords.

    Yeah, out of coincidence from purely having them to hand they did a very good jopb - baby wipes that is.

    You need to keep on top of this as well. We have two white leather settees and have left them for a while now. And although it dont show but when you go over them with a baby wipe it soon turns dark. What we are going to do is get some giant bed sheets to put over them. Obviously in the summer and you sit on one of them topless you stick to them. Please forgive as i am terrible at trying to explain something simple. Must try harder

    As a side note. Baby wipes are excellent for cleaning the material roof lining in cars. They don't smudge or leave a mark or anything, just take the dirt off. TR's tip for the day

    You need to be careful what you put on leather as anything containing enzymes will damage it. I'd suggest not using baby wipes. Most supermarkets sell leather cleaning kits which you will find near the polishes etc.

    We were told by the guy who sold us our leather 3 piece to use baby wipes to clean and baby oil to restore the colour.
